Grilled Cauliflower Cheese Sandwich

1 head cauliflower
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c. finely grated Parmesan (vegetarian portion)
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 1/2 c. shredded white Cheddar (vegetarian option)


Step 1: Cut cauliflower. Process cauliflower florets in a food processor until the texture resembles rice.

Step 2: In a medium bowl, combine processed cauliflower, eggs, Parmesan (vegetarian) and oregano. Mix until evenly combined then season with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray then scoop the cauliflower mixture into a small patty on one side of the pan. Repeat to form a second patty on the other side. (These are your “bread” slices.) Press down and cook 3 minutes on each side.

Step 4: Top one cauliflower slice with cheese (vegetarian) then place the other cauliflower slice on top. Cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes more per side.
